my two betta boys and speed racing snail

i didnt take any good pics of my bettas together in the 5.5 gal. i tryed my darnest and all i got was crap!
oh well, here are my newest family members

my newest betta in his little house i had to keep him in a couple of days until i got my 5.5 split

and here is my 5.5 with just one betta and my snail

another picture of my tank, and decor but its changed since then, did away with the rock (it cut my fishey!) and got some more plants

and here are my crappy pics of my tank now (divided with another that other betta in there)

just so everyone knows these pics dont do blue betta any justice. not good pics of him at all, becuase honestly not to brag or anything but he is one of the most prettiest bettas i have ever seen (but just in my opinion) maybe when i get a digital camera i can show him off!

oh by the way that IS pantyhose on my filter. i had to have them to slow the current. (soaked in hot hot water of course!)

also! please help me name my two bettas! Snail is named
"the mock five".... thats the cars name from speed racer!

Pretty bettas . That little tank is one of those Lee's Dual Betta Hexes, right? Those are really helpful as hospital tanks and also are good to put bettas in when doing water changes . I have a couple for those reasons.

I'm not sure what to name them...I usually go by personality as well as colors when naming my fishies. Kiyoshi, for example, is a quiet fish and so his name means 'quiet' ^_^.

well my blue one is very mean. he flares at me, and the other betta of course. he is also very active and powerful looking. hes a big boy! so i would want a name to go with that pretty well. maybe that will help yall help me think of a name?
my other one is silly. he doesnt flare at the other betta but he flares at his food! i havent gotten to know my new fish very well, only had him since wed.
but he seems very graceful and does move as erraticly as my other one.
any ideas?

For the blue one maybe a name like Rocky, Brutus, or Spike? Since he's always acting so tough.

I can't think of any names for the other one. He's really pretty, though. I saw one with that coloring at the store the other day ^_^.

What about Kouhei? That means both calm and peace in Japanese .
